    Yesterday I had a self harm relapse

    and I'm unsure if I should tell my boyfriend or not because I don't want to keep secrets but I also don't want to hurt him or make him worry

    My brothers 18 and I'm 13.

    When my parents aren't home I have to do all the chores we are given and if I refuse he threatens me. When he is mad about something he takes it out on me, forcing me to wrestle him. And when I try to ignore him, he refuses leave me alone until I do . I do enjoy hanging out...

    I came out as bi to one of my best friends,

    I need help making a choice.

    Class A is a lot of work, but most of the work will be done during class time so it shouldn't take up much of my free time. (No exams, no studying, just writing stuff) It is also taught by a professor with bad ratings who is supposed to be an unnecessarily tough grader. I could...

    So, somehow, this happened.

    The people in my school are terrible people.

    They act like their your friend over a text message and when you get to school they want nothing to do with you. They play with your emotions. They are bad examples. I have truly never met anyone like these people. I moved to the school two years ago. They don't let you be you...
